Be reminded that talent has no age limit, as this cast of 18 teenagers come together to perform in this musical rendering of controversial play, ‘Spring Awakening’. Set in the context of 19th century German society, it revolves around the all too familiar woes of growing up – from questioning morality and approaching sexuality to challenging conformity. With an incredible blend of rock music and singing, this show is every bit as electrifying as it claims to be. Despite a few slow moments towards the end of the production, the cast successfully make a swift comeback with a climactic finale. Above all, this is a truly enjoyable performance by a group of promising young adults, who genuinely enjoy performing.
